Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. Filles de Kilimanjaro (named after the Kilimanjaro African Coffee) is one the many masterpieces American composer and trumpeter Miles Davis recorded during his lifetime. It can be seen as a transitional album, right between his 'acoustic' and 'electric' period. He recorded this incredible work of modern jazz together with music greats such as Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Chick Corea. The five different songs all fitting together as expressions of the same basis piece. The recording sessions made the musicians think and play in a different way. These kind of improvisations were given the listener a look into the future of jazz. It happens to be the swan song for his second great quintet, but one in which they're showing all their talents for the last time. Adventurous from start to end and filled with funky and bluesy rhythms.
